Church Family Update…

Sharing Hearts meeting this coming Saturday, (Oct. 30) from 9-11am… Share prayers, share cards, share food, share needs…get the idea? Everyone is welcome to come together next Saturday morning for the purpose of encouraging each other. Encouraging each other requires that we first need to work at knowing each other.  No need to ever feel disconnected in the body of Christ. Come to Sharing Hearts with the purpose of encouraging others and you will be encouraged. If you have questions, Dan Dupey will welcome them. Everyone who attends is asked to bring a covered dish…to share.

Attend Sunday Bible Classes… Kirk Davidson is teaching a terrific Sunday morning adult Bible class on the book of Colossians, 9am, in our auditorium. Check it out.

Our Frozen Fellowship… It’s off to a good start! Thank you for your willingness to prepare a casserole, soup, and a frozen dessert to help those in need. We still have room in our freezer for more. Just pick-up the frozen food containers in the front of the church office. Marie Clarke will answer your questions. Thank you.

Remember our food pantry needs: Canned fruit, frozen vegetables, boxed meals, tuna helper, pasta sides, bread, juice, hot and cold cereal, chili, beef stew, spam, chunky soups, salad dressings, granola bars, cake mixes, muffins, etc.

Are you praying about Nicaragua? You will probably never have a better opportunity to take a mission trip. It will only cost $500 for each person (due to paying off our building); but, we will need to know if you want to go by the first Sunday in December. That same Sunday we also need a $50 nonrefundable deposit so we can start working with the airlines to get the best deal possible.

The invitation is a wonderful tradition we offer each Sunday morning… We always want to give everyone the opportunity to ask our shepherds to pray with them, help them with questions, or help with other needs. Traditionally, we have asked people to respond by coming forward; but, many have expressed they are uncomfortable with coming to the front (thinking people are staring at them). So, for awhile, our shepherds will stand in the back for people to go quietly to them with their needs. But we will still bring anything a person wants brought before the congregation.

dgyouth ministry…

Sundays with Job, 9am.

Weather Update
The national weather service is telling us there is a 70% chance of snow mixed with rain on October 31st. Now while the weather forecast may change, we want everyone to be able to plan ahead. So, we are moving everything to the small auditorium. We still need your candy!

Just treats and games…NO TRICKS…NO TRUNKS.

Tough Faith
Messages from Habakkuk

Part 2:
“A How-Long Faith”

by Michael Lewis

October 17, 2021

Scriptures: Habakkuk 1-3:6; Psalms 6:3; Psalms 13:1; Psalms 11:3-4; Hebrews 11:33-39; 1 Corinthians 6:19.

One of Habakkuk’s favorite questions was to ask God:  How long? .

Faith based upon a lack of problems lives on the brink of  extinction .

Trusting in God means signing to life without total  clarity .

HOW-LONG Faith:

1. Lives between how things are and how things  will   be .

2. Does NOT  interpret  God’s silence as  absence .

3. It is certain about God’s  ultimate   triumph  over evil.

4. It finds stability in the  sovereignty  of God.

Church Family Update…

We need more volunteers… We owe a great debt of gratitude to Mike Swaim, Jack, Tabby, and Isaac Cutler for their service in running the microphones and video from our booth upstairs during worship. But they need some relief from time to time. When you first look into the loft, all the buttons and lights can seem a little intimidating; however, most everything is pre-set and all you have to do for the most part involves turning microphones on/off and/or just changing a slide as needed with PowerPoint. Now training will be available to help you feel comfortable. It is actually fairly easy to pick up on how everything works. Please see Mike Swaim if you have questions or want to volunteer.

Attend Sunday Bible Classes… Kirk Davidson is teaching on the book of Colossians at our 9am Adult Bible Class.

We had a great response last week to our Frozen Fellowship… If you want to help prepare a casserole, soup, and a frozen dessert you may still pick-up the frozen food containers in the front of the church office. If you have questions just ask Marie Clarke.

Remember our food pantry needs: Canned fruit, frozen vegetables, boxed meals, tuna helper, pasta sides, bread, juice, hot and cold cereal, chili, beef stew, spam, chunky soups, salad dressings, granola bars, cake mixes, muffin mixes, toothpaste, tooth brushes, floss, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, deodorant.

We will go to Nicaragua March 25 thru April 2… It will only cost $500 for each person and we will need to know if you want to go by the first Sunday in December. On that same Sunday you will need to turn in a $50 nonrefundable deposit so we can start working with the airlines to get the best deal we can find.

The invitation is a wonderful tradition we offer each Sunday morning… We want to present everyone the opportunity to ask our shepherds to pray with them, help them with questions, or help with other needs. Traditionally, we have asked people who respond by coming forward but many have expressed that they are just too nervous to come to the front. So for awhile, our shepherds will stand in the back for people to go quietly to them with fewer eye balls upon them. But we will still bring anything a person wants brought before the congregation. Let’s see if this helps.

Tough Faith
Messages from Habakkuk

Part 1:
“A Tough Faith is a WHY-FAITH”

by Michael Lewis

October 10, 2021

PRINT MICHAEL’S HANDOUT

General Principles:

All scripture must be understood through the lens of  Christ .

Habakkuk is about a prophet’s tussle with God for  not   responding  to his prayers about something clearly evil that burdened him.

Evil is only worth complaining about if  God   exists .

Hard places in life often expose  weaknesses  in our faith.

WHY- FAITH:

1. WHY-Faith is faith that can be  burdened .

2. It’s better to have a faith that runs toward  God  than an  anger  that runs away.

3. There should always be some  mystery  in faith; otherwise it would NOT be  faith .

Alex’s (my brother who passed away) best friend is a doctor at the hospital and asked me if he could transfer my mother to his station so that he could monitor and take care of her himself. He said she is his family and transferring her allows him to take care of her. I am emotionally so overwhelmed by his actions, by all the prayers and good will that my mom, Adelheid and family have received over these past days. God is SO good. Thank you all for your prayers!!!

Does It Matter if We Gather?

Part 4:
“We Gather to Scatter”

by Michael Lewis

October 3, 2021

PRINT MICHAEL’S HANDOUT

Scriptures: Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 19:10; Matthew 8:25; John 14:6; John 8:24; Acts 4:12; Matthew 16:16-18; Acts 4:12; Acts 11:19-26; Acts 13:1-6; Acts 15:11; Galatians 4:28; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21.

Christ’s mission for us is based upon these principles:

1. The world needs  saving .

2.  Jesus  is absolutely necessary for salvation.

3. People need the gospel; but the gospel needs  people .

Jesus needs a church willing to come in and  meet  so we can go out and  scatter .

The church doesn’t just preach grace; we must put grace on  display .

We commit ourselves to the rhythm of  gathering  and  scattering .
